10:00am to 10:50am

This session will explore the sometimes harsh realities of making aquatics accessible for every user. Dennis Berkshire (Aquatic Design Group) will explore the needs and demands for able-bodied and disabled users, and the implications of these in universal aquatic facility design. Attendees will experience an interactive discussion and learn why their specific desires can’t always be accomplished, since the needs of all users must be met. In addition, they will gain a stronger understanding of design, budget, and “real world” issues as they relate to universal aquatic facility design.
